46%
BELOW AVERAGE

Xavier University of Louisiana graduation rate is below the national average.

46% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Xavier University of Louisiana completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

Overall Rating:

As a former student & alumni, I pen this review to remark about the quality education I received from this fine institution. One of the leading, if not the leading, at the time of this review, HCBUs /Universities with the highest rate of acceptance of African Americans into Medical Schools, XU has something to be proud of.Also to be noted is there great Pharmacy Program where the nations best and brightest fight to gain acceptance into this year accredited program.I will be the first to admit, the administrative side of XU is kind of lackluster, especially the financial aid department; but over looking that & going in head-first, XU is a school where one can truly receive the HBCU experience being sought after.The staff & professors are top rate & to be commended for a job well done.
